Lou Fontinato was one of the original "enforcers" back during the Original Six days. He neatly signed his name in thin blue marker.
Recently, I was able to pick up a set of these 1956-57 "Missing Link" cards for cheap. Though this set depicts players from 40 years ago, a good number of the players--like "Leapin' Lou"--are still alive, and quite willing to sign through the mail.
